Exclusive to ESP Play, our Switch range of products is designed to give schools the versatility to create an extensive range of outdoor learning resources and outdoor PE resources that can be adapted to the needs of particular groups of pupils or curriculum requirements.
Our outdoor classroom resources include a wide range of interchangeable educational panels for use across the entire curriculum. We have subject-specific resources for English, maths, science, art, design and technology, history, geography, modern foreign languages, music and PE, as well as cross-curricular boards. For versatility, each board is interchangeable and can be removed from its stand when not being used, ensuring it is not damaged in the playground when not in use. We also have a selection of interchangeable tabletop boards which are attachable to our child-sized picnic style tables for use when the children are seated.
For PE and playground use, we also have a wide range of interchangeable roped structures. We provide you with the hard standing structural frames and you can then choose from our wide selection of rope designs which can be used for climbing, balancing, and swinging exercises. As with our other Switch resources, you can change from one design to another easily, at any time, to suit the needs of your pupils or the lesson you are teaching. When not on use, ropes can be taken down completely for safe storage.
Our roped structures can also be incorporated into any trim trail design you have in mind.
